Seal Clubbing - The True Story???...

Sometimes the best way to deal with the uninformed and hysterical is with humour and satire. Graphic design and digital animation learners at CONA (College of the North Atlantic) in Newfoundland and Labrador, have done just that with an amazing;y well done rebuttal to the European Union's ban on seal products due to the EU's perception of the seal hunt being barbaric and cruel (how barbaric would it be if seal pups were ugly? Hmmm...). Here is their amazing video "The Shame of The North Atlantic" (pay close attention to the name of broadcast company...) - enjoy!

As a die-hard, non-leather wearing vegetarian, I did applaud the EUs ban on seal products. I do recognize the diffculty this raises for groups which base their income on the practice, but find the practice of killing other mammals for profit barbaric.
HOWEVER, the video is hysterical, and I will be using it to base debate on next year.
